Lands range from $20 to $60 
per acre. We have prairie, tim- 
ber and valley lands. Consid- 
erable of our wheat made 40 
bushels and our corn in some 
fields is making 75 bushels per 
acre. Our berries, cherry, 
grape, peach and apple crop 
was enough to fill anyone with 
delight. Red and white clover, timothy, blue 
grass, alfalfa, etc., are grown successfully 
here. Our county has no towns without 
railroads, and is well watered by springs, 
creeks and rivers. We are located 50 miles 
from Kansas City, 20 miles from Topeka, 
the State capital, 40 miles from Leaven- 
worth, and 35 miles from Atchison, all 
large cities and fine markets. Don't fool 
away good time and money on lands in the 
experimental stage, but cast your lot where 
Mother Earth yields abundantly, and the 
people are enjoying a big chunk of pros- 
perity to prove it. There are several Dun- 
kard Brethren churches in this county, the 
largest of which is located at Ozawkie 
with a membership of 70.

GAP GOODS 



We are the pioneers in furnishing 
Cap Goods by mail. The scores of un- 
solicited testimonials that come to us 
right along from satisfied customers, 
are conclusive evidence that 

Our goods and prices are right. 

We are sending goods into every 
state and territory where our mem- 
bers are located. A large number of 
merchants are buying goods from us 
in wholesale quantities because we can 
furnish the most desirable goods at ex- 
tremely low prices. Our customers 
number away up into the thousands. 

We carry a large stock of goods and 
fill all orders promptly, postage pre- 
paid, at prices that defy competition 
considering quality.

business for a number of years and 
you will not be experimenting if you 
continue to send your orders to us in 
the future as you have been doing in 
the past.

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



A Permanent 
Cure for Piles 



We have treated Brethren from all 
over the United States during the past 
29 years of our successful practice as 
rectal specialists, and in the Brethren 
Almanac have always carried an an- 
nouncement of our proposition, which 
is to accept no money until the patient 
is satisfied a cure has been effected. The 
Brethren Publishing House would not 
continue to publish these announcements 
if they were not positive our institution 
was a reliable one in every respect and 
that we absolutely accept no money till 
cured. Treating the number of Breth- 
ren we do every year, the Almanac pub- 
lishers would certainly receive com- 
plaints, if we did not carry out in every 
respect the promises made in our adver- 
tisement. We treat piles, fistula, and dis- 
eases of the rectum, and accept no mon- 
ey till the patient is cured. We tell upon 
examination what the cost will be for a 
cu.re and the 
length of time re- 
quired, but our 
examinations are 
always free and 
the patient is not 
urged to remain if 
these conditions 
are not satisfac- 
tory. Write to-day 
for a 352-page il- 
lustrated treatise 
on diseases of the 
rectum, containing 
also hundreds of 
letters from prom- 
i n e n t people 
throughout the 
country whom we 
have cured. We 
also send the la- 
dies a 132-page 
treatise containing letters from ladies on- 
ly, and urge all those who may be afflict- 
ed to investigate fully the letters and in- 
formation contained in these free books. 
Write to any of the following Breth- 
ren and they will tell you how they 
were treated:

A Specimen Letter 

From One of Oar 

Dunkard Friends 




Walked Two Miles to His Boarding 
House While Being- Treat- 
ed for Files. 

Salem, 111., Sept. 2, 1906. 
Drs. Thornton & Minor, St. Louis. 

Gentlemen: After consulting several 
specialists in regard to my case and 
hearing them trying to almost force me 
to take their treatment, telling me that 
there was no other treatment that could 
do me any good. When almost dis- 
couraged I heard of Drs. Thornton & 
Minor and of their honesty, through a 
friend, and of their wonderful treat- 
ment. I was examined by them and 
was surprised at the way they talked 
from the other 
doctors. They did 
not try to scare 
me or talk in any 
way that would 
force me to take 
their treatment. 
They simply told 
me that I had 
piles and ulcera- 
tion and how long 
it would take to 
cure me and how 
much it would 
cost, and finding 
prices reasonable 
I decided to let 
them have m y 
case. It was a 
mild treatment 
you may know, as 
I went back and 
forth from my boarding place in St. 
Louis and walked part of the time 
and it was over two miles away. I 
was dismissed as cured over one year 
ago and the day I left I felt like a 
new man and have been feeling better 
ever since. I can recommend this 
treatment to any one suffering with 
such diseases. 

I will gladly answer all correspond- 
ence. Wishing you success, I am, 
yours very truly, 

M. A. HERSHBERGER, 
Dunkard Farmer.

To hear people. When they call for the Blood Vitalizer, speak so highly of the good It 
Is doing, writes Mr. Frederick Dinse, 33 Bahrer Avenue, Cleveland. Ohio, one of the 
agents for the remedy In that city. 

In view Of such comments, it is not to be wondered at that the agents for Dr.

which is possessed of positive merit. Further particulars by addressing Dr. Peter

PEOPLE WHO HAVE NEVEE 
BEEN SICK 
Arc apt to hold very skeptical notions 
in regard to diseases and their cure. They 
w;nit to trust everything to nature, and 
• i they are unwilling to give her any as- 
sistant. Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer is 
hand-maid of nature in restoring 

■ M tissue and energy. Andrew An- 

on, Albuquerque, N. Mex., writes: "I 
have used many remedies hut nothing that 
cornea up to the Dr. Peter's Blood Vital- 
izer." 



DELICATE AND PUNY CHILDREN 

May grow up to l>e Btrong and vigorous 
men and women, if nature ^'ts the upper 
hand hefore the bone and tissue have be- 
come too firmly set. Of remedies for the 
young ones there is probably nothing 
which is so satisfactory as Dr. Peter's 
Blood Vitalizer. C. Kroon, Duncaneby, 

Miss., writes: "We are highly satisfied 
with the Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer. It 

has made our children healthy and rosy- 

cheeked." 



BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



of a cane. This he did at noon while 
his horses were eating. With a pocket 
knife he carved the cane full of animals, 
birds and reptiles from one end to the 
other. The work was well executed, 
showing that the man had a talent for 
this kind of work, and that he was 
industrious and painstaking. 

In 1848 he was married to Barbara 
Kindig, who proved to be the right kind 
of a wife for a preacher. In the fall 
of the same year they emigrated, by 
private conveyance, to Woodford county, 
Illinois, being six weeks on the road. 
They were in company with a few other 
families from the same part of Virginia. 
They settled on Grand Prairie, where 
the city of Roanoke now stands. The 
country was then new, land was cheap, 
and Brother Gish was fortunate enough 
to secure some of the best of it. 

In 1852 they united with the Brethren 
church, six others being baptized at the 
same time. This was practically the 
beginning of the church in Woodford 
county. Among the emigrants from 
Virginia there were five members, in- 
cluding his father and mother, and the 
eight baptized on the occasion made 
a group of thirteen. These were or- 
ganized in the fall of the same year, 
and Bro. Gish was elected to the 
ministry. 

Bro. Gish applied himself diligently 
to the study of the Scriptures, and in 
the course of a few years became a fine 
scriptorian. He gave the doctrine of the 
church special attention and was always 
ready to. defend the principles of the 
Brethren church. Under his preaching 
the little flock in W'oodford county grew. 
Others were called to the ministry and 
in due time he was ordained to the 
eldership and given charge of the con- 
gregation. 

Two years after he was called # to the 
ministry he and wife made a trip to 
Virginia by private conveyance. The 
trip one way occupied six weeks, and 
they camped out every night. During 
this tour he did considerable preaching 



in the East, and some years after his 
return to Illinois gradually went into 
mission work, all at his own expense. 
Accompanied by his wife he would visit 
churches and isolated points far and 
near, preaching the Gospel wherever he 
went. His wife was a fine singer, an 
ideal leader, and she conducted the song 
services while Bro. Gish did the preach- 
ing. Wherever they went they were 
welcomed, and they knew just how to 
make themselves agreeable with all 
classes of people, rich and poor alike. 

Every now and then Bro. Gish would 
purchase a farm in some new locality, 
where there were a few members, and 
let some poor preacher have it on terms 
so he could pay for it. In this way he 
helped several preachers to get a start. 
He always looked upon methods of this 
sort as mission work. He believed in 
each congregation having a resident 
minister, who could be with the flock 
and attend to the home preaching. 

Before revivals were much thought of 
he held many protracted meetings in 
different parts of the West. Shortly 
before the war he went to Cedar county, 
Missouri, over one hundred miles from 
any railroad, held a protracted meeting 
that lasted about two weeks and resulted 
in several accessions to the church. He 
was not a revivalist, but a plain gospel 
preacher, who understood his Bible and 
knew how to instruct the people aright. 

Soon after the close of the war he 
went into the South for the purpose of 
opening up mission points, going as 
far as New Orleans. He found the con- 
ditions not favorable for his work so 
far South, and then came into Tennessee, 
and he and his wife visited nearly every 
congregation in that State, going from 
point to point on horseback. Wherever 
they went they encouraged the members 
and did what they could to help place the 
churches in a good working condition. 

In after years he. always accompanied 
by his wife, made many missionary 
trips into the South. He also visited 
the East and many parts of the West,

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



preaching much in Missouri, Kansas, 
Nebraska, Colorado, Texas and Arkan- 
sas. In the latter state he spent many- 
years in real frontier mission work. All 
of this he did not only at his own ex- 
pense, but he helped other preachers 
while they worked in new fields in that 
State. 

To tell of all the trips he made, and 
the work he did would make a long, 
but an exceedingly interesting story. 
He was possessed of considerable means, 
but he was generous, and gave much to 
the poor. He purchased many copies of 
the New Testament and gave them to 
those who did not have the Word of 
God. 

April 30, 1896, he died at Stuttgart, 
Ark., and his remains were taken to 
Woodford county, Illinois, where they 
now rest in the cemetery, near the city 
of Roanoke. All of his property was 
left to his wife without any instructions 
as to what she should do with it. About 
eighteen months later she turned nearly 
all of it, about $60,000, over to the 
General Missionary and Tract Com- 
mittee, to constitute what is now known 
as the Gish Fund, she receiving an an- 
nuity during her lifetime. Sister Gish, 
or Aunt Barbara as she is always called, 
is still living in Woodford county, be- 
ing at this time in her seventy-eighth 
year. The cut accompanying this article 
is a good picture of Brother and Sister 
Gish, at a period when they were bring- 
ing the active part of their mission 
labors to a close. A glance at the picture 
shows that they were good, earnest 
people, and also shows that Brother 
Gish was a man* of more than ordinary 
talent. 



THE PREACHER AND THE 
LAWYER. 

The preacher says to the lawyer, 
" Why can you make the people believe 
you when you tell them lies?" The law- 
yer says to the preacher, " Because when 
I talk I tell it as though it were the truth, 



but when you talk you tell the truth as 
though it were a lie." 

Now where does the difference come 
in? The lawyer talks with earnestness 
and zeal, with all the force that he can 
command, but most of the preachers 
talk and read the Word of God as though 
it were an old story that had lost its vi- 
tality, thereby making the difference be- 
tween the preacher and the lawyer 
(zeal). 

Oh, how often I have wished, when 
some of our ministers rise before an 
audience, with the blessed old Bible in 
hand, that they would read it as though 
they were reading from an inspired vol- 
ume, and as if their hearts were filled 
with zeal of what they were reading, 
thereby far excelling the lawyer in mak- 
ing people believe that what they were 
reading and preaching was truth with 
power divine. Those of our preachers 
who claim they have to work so hard 
through the week that they do not have 
time to prepare to deliver God's message 
are neglecting their duty to the extent 
that the lawyer may be justified in his 
statement. C. M. Smith.

HOW TO PRESERVE A HUSBAND. 

First, be careful in your selection. Do 
not choose one who is too young, and 
take only such varieties as have been 
reared in a good moral atmosphere. 
When once the selection has been made 
let the past remain forever settled and 
give the entire thought to the future. 
Some insist on keeping the husband in a 
pickle, while others prefer hot water. 
It does not seem to be generally known 
that even poor varieties may be made 
swe^t, tender and good by garnishing 
them with patience, smiles and affection. 
They should then be wrapped in a man- 
tle of charity and kept warm with a 
steady fire of devotion. Thus treated, 
they will keep for years as when first 
selected. Sometimes they improve with 
age.

WEIL PRESERVED MEN AND WOMEN. 

we find some remarkably well preserved 
men and women who are sixty, seventy and 
eighty years Old, but the great ma- 
jority show the effect of early struggles, 
hard work and privations long before they 
reach that age. They need a mild, invig- 
orating remedy to help nature restore the 
failing functions. Such a remedy is Dr. 
Peter's Blood Vitalizer. 



FEELS LIKE A NEW MAN. 

The only lasting and satisfactory remedy 

for the ills of manhood Is the one which 
purifies the blood and at the same time 
invigorates the system. Such a remedy is 
Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer.. Rev. Jas. 
R. Lane, of Shirleysburg, Pa.. Bays: "I 
feel like a new man since using Dr. 
Peter's Blood Vitalizer, although 7G years 
old."

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



THE MOUND BUILDERS. 

BY J. S. SECRIST. 



In the great inland plain in Western 
Washington, between the lofty Cascade 
Mountains on the east and the Coast 
Range on the west, are many small 
mounds. This was once a part of Puget 
Sound, but ages ago was raised up so 
that the water receded from it; the great- 
er part is in forests, while there are large 
tracts of gravel prairie, level; and on 
many of these may be found the mounds 
in large numbers. 

What, or who, made them? How long 
ago were they built? We do not know 
this. Some things about them we may 
know; they were built by human beings, 
and were their homes, because the oc- 
casional pottery and other relics found 
in them testify to this. We know they 
were built ages before the Indians' time, 
those who lived there when the whites 
came, as they have a tradition of the 
time of their own ancestors, the Japan- 
ese, and the ancient enemies, the Chi- 
nese; but these mounds were then, when 
they came, as they are to this day. 

The Puget Sound Indians, and many 
of the Pacific Coast Indians, are simply 
Japanese, as any one may easily de- 
tect by close observation. We have seen 
hundreds of them, and if they were 
dressed alike there would be no great 
difference in their general appearance, in 
the Siwash tribe especially. 

But to return to the mound builders 
again; a description of one of the prin- 
cipal cities of them will be of interest. 
Ten miles from the city of Olympia, 
Wash., on what was at that time an arm 
of the Puget Sound, on a large plain, lie 
the ruins of a large city. In passing 
through it we made some observations 
of and deduced some estimates from 
them. The city was built perhaps from 
one to three miles in width, and we were 
able to make out something like six 
miles in length. On this plot there are 
about 25,000 (estimated) mounds. A 
fair estimate would give this city 100,000 



inhabitants. The mounds range in size 
from ten to eighty feet in diameter, the 
largest that we saw. The larger ones 
were located in the principal business 
part of the city, and are even yet sur- 
rounded with well-paved streets, the na- 
tive cobble stone being used for the 
purpose. 

Many of the streets and alleys are 
quite in regular order, some of them only 
ten to twenty feet wide, with here and 
there at irregular intervals a broad, open 
square. We are able also to trace the 
remains of several streets two hundred 
to four hundred feet wide. Four large 
canals traverse the city lengthwise. As 
we meditated upon all this, and reflected 
upon the past, we could once more, in 
our imagination, see these canals filled 
with canoes, laden with their merchan- 
dise, fish and game from up the sound. 
We could see the streets filled with men 
and women, youth and maidens, and the 
little children playing about the huts 
made of sun-dried mud bricks, or cedar 
and fir poles. We could see the chief 
calling to council the elders of the city 
as the couriers bring the tidings of the 
approaching enemy, or the devastating 
plague or famine. Hopelessly they 
struggle against this day by day. I see 
them weeping and wailing, watching and 
waiting in despair until the last one of 
their number has been taken captive, or 
has perished by the dreaded plague or 
famine. Their city is left without an in- 
habitant; their weeping is hushed; they 
meet in council no more, and nature 
spreads over them and theirs a carpet of 
green. 

Another people came, and are also 
gone; "the white man has come." What 
will he do? What shall be his latter end? 
Oh! my God, in this awful stillness of 
death, let me read destiny; let me see 
thy will; make me to know my latter 
end; speak to our troubled hearts, 
11 Peace, be still, and know that I am 
God." 

Olympia, Wash.

"HE'S HOT THE MAN 

He used to be. I should hardly know him; he has fallen away so much." Wh.it a 
lesson In those words, and yet, we hear them nearly every day! Not really sick, but 
ailing — lo&ing flesh, dispirited, melancholy. There are many in just that condition. 
A word Of encouragement and a little timely advice to commence treatment with Dr. 
Peter's Blood Vitalizer will quickly change the aspect. 

Mr. George Adolph, Rurlingame, Kans., writes: " Every one in town knew my 
condition. Words < -annot toll the good your Blood Vitalizer did mo." 

Further particulars regarding this old-fashioned herb-remedy cheerfully supplied by 
the sole manufacturers, Dr. Peter Pahrney 8c Sons Co., 112-118 So. Hoyne Ave., Chicago, HI.

Since Pentecost falls on Sunday, to 
find the date of the Annual Meeting in 
any given year, one has only to count 
forward two days to Tuesday. Example, 
Pentecost for 1907 falls on Sunday, May 
19; count forward to Tuesday and we 
have May 21, the day on which the Con- 
ference is to open at Los Angeles, Cal. 
In 1908 Pentecost falls on June 7, and the 
time of the Annual Meeting is June 9.

AN AGE OF SKEPTICISM. 

This is ail :iKf Of skepticism and unbe- 
lief. Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer lias won 
over and made friends of many skeptics 
who were sick and In distress. Philip 
Koehler. 5043 Wabash Ave. Chicago, 111., 
says: "I never had any faith in I ready- 
prepared medicine until I used Dr. Peter's 
Blood Vitalizer/' 



GLOOMY PEOPLE. 
There are some people in this world who 
are gloomy, morose and pessimistic by na- 
ture, others are so because their blood and 
liver are out of order. If you have a 
friend who is continually crusty — maybe 
vou are so vonrself — pet him to use Dr. 
Peter's Blood Vitalizer, and see how quick- 
ly things will brighten.

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



ELK LICK, PENNSYLVANIA. 

By C. G. Lint. 



The history of the German Baptist 
Brethren church in Western Pennsyl- 
vania dates back to as early as the year 
1760 or 1762, when the Brethren began to 
emigrate from the eastern part of the 
State. Crossing the Alleghany moun- 
tains they settled in what was known as 
the " Glades," or Stony Creek, just west 
of the mountain. The territory spread 
northward and westward, parallel with 
the mountain range, and southward a 
distance of twelve miles to the Cassel- 
man River. They also settled on the 
Elk Lick and Flaugherty creeks, the 
former flowing eastward and emptying 
into the Casselman River west of Mey- 
ersdale, and the latter flowing eastward 
and emptying also into the Casselman, 
possibly 450 yards above the former, the 
Casselman flowing westward into the 
Ohio. 

On the three streams mentioned the 
Brethren began the work of clearing 
ground for homes and establishing places 
of worship. The Brethren in the 
" Glades," as well as those on the river, 
held their meetings in common and al- 
ternately, one Sunday in the " Glades " 
and the next Sunday on the river. The 
meetings were held in dwellings, barns, 
and occasionally in schoolhouses, the 
points of worship being as many as fif- 
teen and twenty miles apart; and to the 
credit of the old veterans of the cross, 
it can be said that not only did the min- 
isters attend these alternate meetings 
regularly, but many of the laity, of both 
sexes, as well. They would walk the en- 
tire distance, and, as my mother has fre- 
quently told me, in their bare feet for 
the most of the distance. They would 
start from home early in the morning 
and return in the evening, the rule being 
that after services refreshments were 
served and horses cared for free at the 
place where the meeting was held, the 
expense being borne by the family re- 
siding at that point. 



I have in my possession a " Versamm- 
lungs Briefly," which I prize very highly 
on account of its age, having been pub- 
lished about seventy years ago. It con- 
tains a roster of the former church fa- 
thers, and other information, among it 
being the names of forty heads of fami- 
lies, twenty residing in the " Glades " 
and twenty on the river. It was in the 
homes of these, or their barns, that the 
meetings were held throughout the year. 
This was known as the Big Glade church, 
and was presided over by Michael Moyer, 

Sr., and Forney, and later by Peter 

Cober, up until the year 1844 or 1846, 
when the church was divided into four 
districts, as follows: Berlin, presided 
over by Peter Cober; Quemahoning, by 

Forney; Middlecreek, by Jacob S. 

Hauger; Elk Lick, by John Berkley, Jr., 
and Jacob Lichty. These were the first 
bishops of the Elk Lick congregation, 
and to assist them in the ministry breth- 
ren John B. Meyers and Samuel Berkley, 
the latter a brother of the bishop, were 
elected to the ministry. 

Elk Lick at this time had about 125 
earnest, faithful members, all heads of 
families, and it was a very rare thing 
for a single person to belong to the 
church. In 1847 a large meetinghouse 
was erected along Elk Lick creek, near 
Summit Mills, not far from where the 
Annual Meeting was held in the year 
1841. In the year 1851 a churchhouse 
was erected along Flaugherty Creek, in 
Meyers Mills, now Meyersdale; one on 
the Casselman River, near Salisburg; one 
at the head waters of the Flaugherty, in 
Greenville township, and another at 
Berkley's Mills, in the Summit township. 
Thus it will be seen that by the year 
1854 the Brethren had five churchhouses 
and one schoolhouse in which to hold 
services, and the meetings in houses and 
barns became relics of the past. 

In the year 1852 brethren Elias K. 
Buechly and David Livengood, who

died in 1870, were called to the ministry. 
In 1854 Bro. John B. Myers moved to 
Ohio, and early in the year 1855 Eld. 
Jacob Lichty died. During the same 
year brethren C. G. Lint, Peter Berkley 
(died 1865) and William M. Horner 
(died 1872) were elected to the ministry. 
This organization continued until 1877, 
covering a period of some thirty years of 
great faithfulness and prosperity, as well 
as many changes. In 1849 the debate on 
the subject of " Baptism " took place in 
the Summit Mills church between Rev. 
Harry Knepper of the German Reformed 
church and Eld. James Quinter. In 1859 
the Annual Meeting was held at the 
same place, and in 1873 at Meyersdale. 

In the year 1865 Elder Berkley died, 
and in 1867 C. G. Lint was ordained, 
which was the second and last ordina- 
tion in said district. The ministers serv- 
ing during this time, not already men- 
tioned, were David Beeghley (moved 
away in 1865), John Cross (moved away 
in 1862), Daniel M. Miller (moved away 
in 1862), Jonathan Kelso, Jonas Lichty, 
Silas C. Keim, Joel Gnagey, Nathaniel 
Merrill, H. R. Holsinger (came in 1871, 
left in 1873), Joseph W. Beer (came in 
1871, left in 1876), Joseph B. Sell, James 
Quinter (came in 1873, left in 1876), 
John A. Miller and A. D. Gnagey. 

The membership in 1877 numbered 600, 
however no longer members who were 
heads of families only, but young per- 
sons were now numbered in the fold. 
The writer remembers baptizing a little 
girl, up to this time the youngest yet 
baptized by our people at this place — 
Sadie Maust — now the faithful compan- 
ion of a worthy elder in Waterloo, Iowa, 
congregation. Coming away from the 
water an aged deacon tapped me gently 
upon the shoulder and said, " Brother 
Lint, you must quit preaching against in- 
fant baptism." 

In the year 1877 the Elk Lick church 
was divided into three districts, viz., 
Elk Lick congregation, placed under the 
charge of Eld. Jonathan Kelso; Summit 



Mills, elders Jonas Lichty and Joel 
Gnagey; Meyersdale, bishop C. G. Lint. 
Meyersdale had three meetinghouses and 
one minister. In 1878 brethren John R. 
Lichty and Harvey M. Berkley were 
elected .to the ministry, the latter, how- 
ever, declining the call. In the year 1880 
brethren E. K. Hochstetler, S. P. Maust 
and U. D. Braucher were called to the 
ministry and installed. On account of 
the Progressive troubles about thirty, 4n 
1881, withdrew. 

The local membership, having passed 
through a severe ordeal, now number- 
ing less than 200, decided that same year 
to build a house upon the site of the old, 
large enough for love feast purposes. In 
the year 1882 the old house was razed 
and the present structure erected. In 
the fall we held a very pleasant love 
feast, Eld. D. P. Sayler officiating. The 
work of the church now moved along 
very pleasantly, now and then adding to 
their number. In 1887 we had a two 
weeks' meeting, conducted by Eld. J. S. 
Flory, upon which occasion sixty-five 
were added to the church. 

Since our organization we have con- 
ducted a weekly Bible class, and have a 
flourishing Sunday school with an enroll- 
ment of 200. Our Christian Workers' 
meetings are very interesting and help- 
ful to our young members, and older 
members are profiting by them. At 
this time we have four church buildings, 
in three of which we hold love feasts. 
In the year 1894 the Annual Meeting was 
held in this district. In the year 1895 
Isaiah C. Johnson, a minister of the sec- 
ond degree, located here, removing in 
1901 to Waterloo, Iowa. In 1898 E. F. 
Clark, also of the second degree in the 
ministry, came among us. The organi- 
zation now stands as follows: Eld. C. 
G. Lint, S. P. Maust, E. K. Hochstetler, 
E. F. Clark, Thomas Hardin and Daniel 
Clapper, the latter two in charge of the 
Hyndman church, both in second degree, 
with a good body of deacons.

SPLITTING HAIRS. 

While the medical profession is splitting 1 hairs over scientific and obscure theories, 
thousands of people are suffering - from fhe common ailments of the day — headaches 
and weak digestions. One almost feels that there is too much science, too much theor- 
izing and too little practical work. In the meantime. Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer remains 
the people's remedy. It not only relieves, but it cures. 

Mr. G. T. Lane, Anniston, Ala., says: "The Blood Vitalizer cured me completeley 
of indigestion and nervous dyspepsia." Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer is not a drug store 
medicine. It is supplied direct to the people by the sole proprietors, Dr. Peter Fahr- 
ney & Sons Co., 112-118 So. Hoyne Ave., Chicago, 111.

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



A HISTORY OF THE QUEMAHONING CONGREGATION, 
SOMERSET CO., PA. 

By Jerome E. Blough. 



Introductory. — It must have been to- 
wards the close of the eighteenth 
century when the Brethren crossed the 
Allegheny mountains into Somerset 
county (then Bedford county) and set- 
tled at a place called the " Glades," 
near which Berlin is now located. For 
some years all the preaching was 
done by ministers from the east. and 
south. The membership increased by 
immigration and conversion and grad- 



exception of Paint township in the north- 
eastern corner of the county, which 
forms the greater part of the Shade 
Creek congregation, was in one con- 
gregation. In that year the Annual 
Meeting was held in the Grove meeting- 
house near Berlin. At this meeting a 
committee consisting of Brethren Peter 
Long, Andrew Spanogle, John Holsinger 
of Philadelphia, Joseph Arnold, Jacob 
Biser of Virginia, George Hoke and

Pa. Built 1855. 



ually spread over the greater part of 
the county. During the first half of 
the nineteenth century they brought 
to the front strong and able men in 
the ministry of their own material. 
The first Brethren meetinghouse in 
the county seems to have been built 
near Berlin in 1845 and the second 
one at Summit Mills in 1846. These 
are perhaps among' the largest houses 
owned by the Brethren. 
Division of the County. — Prior to 
1849 all of Somerset county, with the 



Henry Kurtz of Ohio, was appointed 
to look into the advisability of district- 
ing this large territory into smaller 
districts or congregations. These Breth- 
ren met the same summer at Berkley's 
Mills and divided the county into four 
congregations, viz., Elk Lick, Berlin, 
Middle Creek and Quemahoning. 

Territory. — Quemahoning congrega- 
tion covers a very large territory, 
stretching from the Alleghanies on the 
east to the Laurel Hill Ridge on the 
west, and from within three miles of

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC 



Somerset on the south to the Cambria 
county line on the north, an area of 
probably 400 to 500 square miles. At 
different times during the history of 
this church, members have been scattered 
over the greater part of this territory. 

Organization. — The members living in 
this territory convened in council at a 
point now called Stanton's Mills to 
consider whether the division was ac- 
ceptable to them. This meeting was 
held in Bro. David Crofford's large barn, 
owned at the present time by Sister 
Mary Stanton. It is not known when 
this meeting was held, who presided, 
how many members were present, 
neither is it known how many and what 
members lived in the district then; 
but it is known that strong objections 
were raised to being cut off from the 
" Glades," as it would deprive them of 
the efficient services of the Berlin 
Brethren. But upon being promised 
that those brethren should still do a 
part of the preaching, -they agreed to the 
division, and the organization was ef- 
fected. All the services were then con- 
ducted in German. 

Ministers. — About the time of the 
division, the brethren who dealt out the 
Word of Life were Peter Cober, Henry 
Meyers, Jacob S. Hauger, John Forney, 
Sr., John Cober, Jonathan Berkley and 
Christian Schmucker. In the division 
the last two fell on the Quemahoning 
side. John Forney, Sr., soon moved 
down from the Glades. About 1851 the 
first election for minister was held, and 
Tobias Blough was chosen. In 1852 or 

1853 Henry P. Hostetler was elected. 
Up to this time all the preaching was 
in the German language, but the demand 
for English preaching becoming pretty 
strong, another election was held in 

1854 and Christopher I. Beam was 
elected, whose services were entirely in 
English. Then followed the election of 
John Forney, Jr. (German and English) 
in 1855, Jonathan W. Blough (German 
and English) and Solomon Baer (Ger- 
man) in 1856, Emanuel J. Blough (Eng- 



lish and German) and Jacob P. Speicher, 
(German) in 1866. These were the last 
brethren elected who could use the 
German. 

Still later elections were Samuel P. 
Zimmerman in October, 1874; Joseph 
Beam in 1881 or 1882; John J. Darr, 
September 22, 1890; Jacob S. Zimmer- 
man, October 21, 1893; and Perry J. 
Blough and Jacob M. Blough, September 
4, 1897. 

I had hoped to be able to give the 
date of death and age of John Forney, 
Sr., Jonathan Berkley and Christian 
Schmucker, but cannot do it now. 
Tobias Blough died November 20, 1884, 
aged 73 years. Bro. Hostetler died June 
19, 1898, aged nearly 82, in the Shade 
Creek congregation, where he had lived 
many years. Solomon Baer moved to 
Brothers' Valley where he labored many 
years. John Forney, Jr., moved to 
Illinois in the fifties or sixties. Jacob 
P. Speicher died November 20, 1903, 
aged nearly 86 years. By the adoption 
of a line between us and Middle Creek, 
1903, Joseph Beam fell to Middle Creek. 
Jacob S. Zimmerman moved to Water- 
loo, Iowa, in 1900. Jacob M. Blough 
went to the India mission field in 1903. 
Besides the foregoing ministers the fol- 
lowing have moved into this congrega- 
tion at different times: Amos Christner, 
Isaiah Ferguson, Francis Bower and 
Jerome E. Blough. Of these only the 
last-named remains. About 1856 or 1857 
Michael Forney, having decided to emi 
grate to a section in Southern Illinois 
where there was no preacher, the church 
licensed him to preach before he left 
for the West. This was special and not 
by election. Both he and his brother 
John became prominent ministers in the 
West. 

Elders. — It appears that John Forney, 
Sr., was an elder when he moved into 
this congregation. He died not many 
years after that and Christian Schmucker 
and Jonathan Berkley, Sr., succeeded 
him and they in turn were followed by 
Tobias Blough who was ordained before

A CHILD ASKS QUESTIONS 

At times, which the wisest head cannot answer. Scientists are often astonished at 
the extreme simplicity of problems which it has taken centuries to solve. Eminent 
physicians, with all their skill and learning, stand frequently baffled in the presence 
of an ordinary ailment, when a simple household remedy brings about a cure, because 
it strikes at the root of evil — the impurity of the blood. 

Fred Hannerman, Mitchell, S. Dak., writes: "Three bottles of Dr. Peter's Blood 
Vitalizer made crutches unnecessary in a bad case of rheumatism." 

This old time-tried herb-remedy is not to be had in drug stores. It is supplied 
to the people direct through local agents appointed by the sole manufacturers, Dr. 
Peter Pahraey & Sons Co., 112-118 So. Hoyne Ave., Chicago, HI.

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



the close of the fifties. When he felt 
the work too heavy for his feeble body- 
he called for help and on January 1, 
1882, Emanuel J. Blough was ordained. 
Then there was no ordination until 
June 30, 1900, when Jonathan W. Blough 
was ordained. On September 3, 1904, 
Samuel P. Zimmerman and Perry J. 
Blough were also ordained to assist 
our two aged elders. 

Meetinghouses. — For about five years 
the meetings were held in private houses, 
barns and schoolhouses. In 1855 the 
first meetinghouse was built near the 
Quemahoning Creek in Jenner township 
on land donated by Elias Forney. This 
is one-half mile north of Stanton's Mill, 
the place where the church was organ- 
ized and the first love feast held. The 
house, now named Pine Grove, is still 
in use and in a fair state of preservation. 
The church happens to be located with- 
in the territory selected by the Johns- 
town Water Company for a large dam. 
The church lot (less than a half acre 
and house excepted) has recently been 
sold for two thousand dollars to the 
company and it will be only a question 
of a few more years until this dear, 
sacred spot will exist only in the hearts 
and minds of those who used to worship 
here. In 1860 a meetinghouse was built 
in the other end of the congregation, 
near Sipesville, on land purchased from 
Abraham Baker. In 1875 the first love 
feast house (40 X 70 feet and basement 
under the entire building), was erected 
in Conemaugh township, on land do- 
nated by Daniel Fry. The dedicatory 
services were conducted by Elder Gray- 
bill Meyers and a love feast held at the 
same time. Name of this house is now 
Maple Spring. Prior to this time the 
love feasts were held in barns. In 1880 
the fourth meetinghouse was built in 
the extreme northern end of the con- 
gregation at the foot of Tire Hill on 
land donated by John Kaufman. Elder 
Joseph Berkey preached the dedicatory 
sermon. In 1888 the old house at 
Sipesville was replaced by a new one 



suitable for love feast occasions. It 
was dedicated by Elder C. G. Lint. 
In 1890 a meetinghouse was built at 
Dull Station on land donated by Jacob 
B. Blough. Elders D. H. Walker and 
E. J. Blough conducted the dedicatory 
services. This house is now named 
Sugar Grove. In 1893 the Baer school- 
house, in Somerset township, was con- 
verted into a church and dedicated by 
U. D. Brougher and some of the home 
ministers on September 10, 1893. In 
1895, Percy J. Blough built and fur- 
nished a church room above his ware- 
house in Hooversville, which was dedi- 
cated by Elder Jeremiah Thomas, Sept. 
14, 1895. For eight years to the day 
regular services and Sunday school were 
held here. September 13, 1903, a new 
love feast house to take the place of the 
upper room was dedicated. J. M. Blough 
preached the dedicatory sermon. In 
1905 the old Maple Spring house was 
replaced by a new one which was dedi- 
cated by Elder George S. Rairigh, March 
4, 1906. These last two are brick- 
cased houses nicely finished and fur- 
nished inside. We have three meeting- 
houses where the love feast is held 
annually and four where it is not. 

Sunday Schools. — Our first effort in 
Sunday school work was at Pine Grove 
in the spring of 1880. Aaron Blough 
and Perry J. Blough were superintend- 
ents, and the writer secretary, but be- 
cause of opposition it was discontinued 
at the end of the second summer. Dur- 
ing the years of 1886 and 1887 a Sunday 
school was carried on for a short time 
in the Sipesville meetinghouse. Josiah 
P. Meyers was superintendent and J. J. 
Darr, secretary. After some years, 
schools were opened at Maple Spring, 
Hooversville, Sipesville, Tire Hill and 
Sugar Grove. The last two have been 
discontinued. While we were some- 
what slow in taking up Sunday-school 
work, we were in the lead in local 
Sunday-school conventions in Western 
Pennsylvania. For a number of years 

| we were the only church to hold such

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



meetings. In the present year two 
have been held, one being a joint one 
with Shade Creek. 

Mission Work. — When the many long 
and tedious horseback journeys of our 
old ministers are brought to our notice 
we cannot help but conclude that they 
were filled with the true missionary 
spirit. They did it not for honor or 
for money, but with hearts full of love 
for lost souls. They rode through heat 
and cold, storm and sleet, over hills and 
mountains, through glade and forest, 
preaching in their primitive way in 
schoolhouses, dwellinghouses and barns, 
the unsearchable riches of the Gospel 
of Jesus Christ. As a reward for their 
labors they had the pleasure of seeing 
men and women turn to God. Many 
years ago some members moved across 
the mountains into Westmoreland county 
and a preaching point - was established 
among them. The preaching was done 
for many years by ministers from this 
congregation and many a hard, lonely 
trip was made over rough mountain roads. 
This was the beginning of what is now 
Ligonier Valley congregation. When 
foreign and home mission work finally 
took definite form a number of solicitors 
annually gathered mission money. 
Within recent years the church 
adopted the plan of preaching a special 
missionary sermon at each of our 
meeting places during the month of 
October every year, and then take up 
a public collection. In this way we 
raised considerable money, but a number 
of our members thought we should do 
better; so in 1904 the church pledged 
herself to support a brother in India. 
Most of the readers will remember that 
Bro. J. William Swigart was appointed 
to go. He spent some weeks in our con- 
gregation getting acquainted with our 
people and preaching a number of ser- 
mons, then went home to make the 
final preparation to sail. He took sick 
and after a brief illness he crossed the 
Jordan of Death to his long home instead 
of crossing the ocean to toil and struggle 



in India. Bro. Charles H. Brubaker is 
now appointed in his stead and if our 
Father so wills we will have a brother 
in the field before New Year. But 
monkey is not all that we have to show 
as an evidence that our missionary 
teaching has been effectual. One of our 
number, S. S. Blough, is missionary in 
Pittsburg, Pa.; another one, J. M. 
Blough is in Bulsar, India; another, if 
I am correctly informed, Uriah J. 
Blough, has been an active member of 
the mission board of Northern Iowa 
for a number of years; another, Elijah 
E. Blough, is a member of the mission 
board of the Second District of Vir- 
ginia; and still another one, P. J. Blough, 
has been an active member of our 
(Western Pennsylvania) mission board 
for many years. Quite a number of our 
young people have joined the Missionary 
Reading Circle, and I think few congre- 
gations receive more copies of the 
" Missionary Visitor." 

General. — Almost from its organiza- 
tion to the present time this congrega- 
tion h,as suffered very much from emi- 
gration. In this way we have lost many 
of our strong, promising members. No 
doubt there are hundreds of active 
church workers scattered over the West 
and the South whose ancestors were 
once members of this congregation. No 
church record was kept until the begin- 
ning of the twentieth century. From 
then to the present ninety-six have been 
baptized and sixty-five letters of mem- 
bership granted." Our present organiza- 
tion consists of four elders, two ministers 
in the second degree, thirteen deacons 
and about three hundred and five mem- 
bers altogether. In 1881 the district 
meeting was held in our Maple Spring 
house. Since the first Maple Spring 
house was built we have held a number 
of district ministerial and Sunday-school 
meetings. In education our people early 
took great interest. Many of our 
brethren have been leading teachers in 
their day. A large majority of our 
preachers have been called from these

ranks. Then, too, quite a number of our 
young people have attended Juniata Col- 
lege a number of terms and other institu- 
tions of learning. 

Ours has been in the fullest sense a 
free ministry, though our territory has 
been exceptionally hard to work and our 
ministers were frequently called upon to 
preach funerals for those outside of our 
church. Thirty or more years ago series 
of meetings began to be held, and there 
have passed few years in the last twenty 
but what several of these meetings were 
held. 

We aim to keep in touch with our An- 
nual Conference. We represent by one 
or two delegates when the distance is 
not too great. 

We have at present two Christian 
Workers' meetings, but no Aid or Sew- 
ing Society. Our people, however, are 
always ready to respond to calls for 
help, be it for building churches, feeding 
the starving or clothing the poor. 

R. F. D. No. 1, Holsopple, Pa.

UNFERMENTED WINE. 

There are still calls for a recipe for 
making unfermented wine. We give the 
following, which has been tested for 
years: 

Use only the best of ripe grapes, and 
wash them well to start with. Press out 
the juice in any manner desired, and 
strain thoroughly. Some cook the grapes 
before attempting to press out the juice. 
Others place the grapes in an ordinary 
press and in this way extract the juice. 
Either way is good. But the oftener it 
is strained the better. Then heat, and 
can in glass jars, the same as fruit. Also 
care for the canned juice the same as 
canned fruit. Grape juice, put up in this 
manner, will keep in an unfermented 
state for years. It is the wine recom- 
mended for communion purposes. Di- 
luted with a little water, it makes a very 
healthful and harmless drink. Blackber- 
ry and raspberry juice put up in the same 
manner make a fine table drink and will 
keep for years. 



WHILE THE SHEPHERDS ARE 
DISPUTING. 

This picture, adapted from the Ram's 
Horn, represents a condition that is only 
too true. While the preachers dispute 
about matters that might be left unset- 
tled, the devil comes along, gathers the 
sheep into one great drove and drives 
them away. He takes them where he 
pleases and does with them about what 




While the Shepherds Dispute. 

he thinks will be for the enlarging of his 
kingdom. The devil wants nothing bet- 
ter than a long, earnest dispute between 
the preachers in a locality where there 
are a number of church members. He 
knows that if the dispute can be kept up 
long enough he is sure to get the last 
sheep of the flock started his way. 

This is probably the great trouble with 
the churches the country over. While 
the shepherds have their backs t f med the 
devil is getting the sheep. Hundreds are 
driven into the lodges, and then into the 
grand lodge above, as they are made 
to think. Some go back to the world, 
and not a few are lost in other ways. 
We need shepherds who will keep their 
eye on the sheep and leave the knotty 
questions and unprofitable questions to 
be settled after all the sheep and lambs 
are safe in the fold. Jesus looked after 
the lost sheep of Israel and wasted no 
time on unprofitable questions.

The table is based on the ministerial 
lists, published in the Almanac from 
year to year. It will be observed that 
there is a slight decrease in the list from 
1905 to 1906, caused mainly by the re- 
moving of names that had . by mistake 
been duplicated. For three years there 



an increase of about twenty-six per cent 
for the period covered. That is, 573 
more preachers than we had in 1896. 

While our ministerial force has been 
increasing for the period considered, 
still we do not have as many preachers 
as we could make good use of.

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



The table might also be studied with 
a view of taking steps to strengthen the 
weak places. It can be plainly seen that 
some of the States are not keeping up 
their ministerial force. In these States 
more attention should be given to the 
importance of calling men to the minis- 
try. We do not mean that we should 
aim at numbers only. But while filling 
the ranks and increasing the forces, due 
consideration should be had for efficien- 
cy and faithfulness.

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



THE WORK OF TEN YEARS. 

About fifteen years ago, we com- 
menced publishing the number of ac- 
cessions reported through the Gospel 
Messenger, week after week, and footed 
up at the end of the year. The figures 
were never exact, but may be regarded 
as approximately correct. Below we 
are giving the record for ten years, as 
correctly as it could well be arranged 
from the data furnished: 

1896 5,464 

1897 5,600 

1898 5,000 

1899, 4,940 

1900 4,300 

1901, ., 4,300 

1902, 5,000 

1903 5,028 

1904, 4,400 

1905, 5,400 

49,432 
It will thus be seen that in ten years 
our additions to the church by confes- 
sion and baptism foot up practically 
fifty thousand, falling considerably short 
of the birth rate in members' families. 
That is, there are more children born 
into families of members than are added 
to the church. Were all of the members' 
children to come to the church, when 
reaching proper age, the accessions 
would in ten years, number about ninety 
thousand, instead of fifty thousand. 

While the Brethren church, as a body, 
is increasing numerically, yet when con- 
sidered in the light of the birth rate, we 
are losing. We are doing more to in- 
crease the population of the world than 
we are doing to increase the numerical 
strength of the church. In view of this 
fact it will be well for us to study how 
more and better work may be accom- 
plished. We ought not only to convert 
our own children, but other people's as 
well. Instead of reporting five thousand 
conversions at the end of each year, we 
ought to be able to report at least fifteen 
thousand. Instead of the Brethren 
church numbering one hundred thou- 
sand souls, as it now does, we ought to 
number more than one million. 



BLEEDING STOPPED. 

Miss Jessie Bartman, of Sharon, Minn., 
is only a schoolgirl but she recently ex- 
hibited ah amount of sense and heroism 
that few older people would be capable 
of. She and her father were alone one 
day in their home and Mr. Bartman was 
cutting wood. His axe slipped and he 
severed an artery in his foot. His daugh- 
ter had learned how to apply a tourni- 
quet at school, but Mr. Bartman was so 
fleshy that she knew she could not twist 
a bandage tight enough to stop the flow 
of blood. The patient could give her no 
help, as he had fainted, but she thought 
of another plan and executed it. Cutting 
off the shoe and stocking and trousers to 
the knee, she set the foot into a twelve- 
gallon jar on about three inches of flour. 
Then she pressed it down with a stick of 
firewood. The bleeding stopped at once, 
for the blood could not penetrate the 
flour. It was four hours before a doctor 
could be secured. When he arrived he 
said that Mr. Bartman would have bled 
to death in a short time if it had not been 
for his daughter's presence of mind. 



HEALTHFULNESS OF HONEY. 

'* Honey, one of the most nutritious 
and delicate of foods, should be eaten 
more than it is," said a cooking expert. 
" Bought in the comb, it is bound to be 
unadulterated, and this pure honey will 
keep its friends free from sore throat 
and bronchial troubles. I have not had 
a sore throat since six years ago I took 
to eating honey. My doctor tells me he 
often recommends honey, with excellent 
results, for diseases of the throat. Honey 
is excellent to use instead of sugar for 
sweetening cakes. It gives the cakes a 
most delightful flavor. It is also excel- 
lent in place of butter on hot biscuit, on 
toast and on buckwheat cakes. I know a 
number of women who use honey as a 
cosmetic. They apply it to the skin, 
rub it in well, then wash it off with hot 
water."

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 




Temple Auditorium, Los Angeles, Cal., where the Annual Meeting is 
to be held, commencing Tuesday, May 21, 1907. 



THE ANNUAL MEETING FOR 1907. 



The Annual Conference for 1907, for 
the first time in the history of the Breth- 
ren church, is to be held on the Pacific 
coast, commencing on Tuesday morn- 
ing, May 21. Los Angeles has been se- 
lected as the place of the meeting, and 
it is to be held in the Temple Audi- 
torium, opposite the Central Park, and 
practically in the center of the city. The 
building is constructed of concrete, ab- 
solutely fireproof, and is said to be the 
most complete structure of the kind in 
the world. On this page will be found 
a picture of the building. 

Fully 7,000 people can be accommo- 
dated in the spacious auditorium, and all 
be within easy hearing distance of the 
speakers on the large platform, which, 
by the way, is. large enough to hold the 
entire Standing Committee and even oth- 
ers. In addition to the auditorium there 
are a number of rooms that can be used 
for various purposes, in connection with 
the necessary work* of the Conference. 

Los Angeles is a charmingly located 
city, having a population of 175,000, and 
is as businesslike in appearance as the 
eity of Chicago, It possesses as fine a 



railroad system as can be found on the 
coast, and a trolley system that is ex- 
celled by no other place of the same 
size on the continent, the system cover- 
ing all the country around the city for 
miles. Lodging arrangements in the 
city will be ample in every respect, and 
all the people attending the meeting can 
be accommodated at the nearby restau- 
rants. 

On Thursday morning, May 16, the 
Standing Committee will meet and or- 
ganize. Each State District is entitled 
to one elder on this committee. Dis- 
tricts having 3,500 or more members 
are entitled to two elders. In the open 
conference each congregation, however 
small, may be represented by one dele- 
gate, either from the laity or the official 
body. Congregations having 200 mem- 
bers have the privilege of sending two 
delegates. Sisters may serve as dele- 
gates from the churches, but they can- 
not serve on the Standing Committee. 
Only regularly ordained elders, or bish- 
ops, can serve on this committee. Where 
there is opposition it requires a two- 
thirds vote of the delegates and Stand- 



33 



BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



ing Committee to carry a question in the 
open conference. 

All business for the conference first 
comes before the Standing Committee, 
and to queries having no answer it is 
the duty of the committee to affix an- 
swers, which the open conference can 
accept, amend or reject. Papers having 
answers are not considered by the 
Standing Committee. They are, without 
discussion, referred to the open confer- 
ence, and must be considered along with 
the answers accompanying them. 

Though the Conference proper does 
not open until Tuesday morning, May 
21, meetings of various kinds may begin 
fully one week before. However, Sun- 
day, May 19, will be a big day. There 
will be discourses in the Auditorium by 
good speakers, as well as sermons in 
some of the Los Angeles churches. Then 
there are Brethren churches at Ingle- 
wood, Tropico, Pasadena, Long Beach 
and other points easily reached, where 
the Word will be held forth. 

On Monday forenoon,' as usual, will be 
the annual Sunday-school meeting in 
charge of the General Sunday School 
Committee. The early part of the after- 
noon will be devoted to a large, enthusi- 
astic missionary meeting under the aus-. 
pices of the General Missionary Com- 
mittee, to be followed by the Annual 
Meeting collection. 

In due time other announcements will 
be made in the Gospel Messenger, and 
the program in full will be given. 

The Committee of Arrangements, hav- 
ing charge of the meeting: S. E. Yundt, 
Foreman, Pomona; A. W. Vaniman, 
Secretary, Pasadena; J. S. Kuns, Treas- 
urer; S. G. Lehmer, Los Angeles, and 
G. F. Chemberlen, Covina, all of Cali- 
fornia. 



WHERE SHALL THEY MEET? 

By S. C. Miller. 

I have frequently wondered how Ma- 
sons, who are also professors of religion, 
would answer the above question, inas- 



much as they always say when one of 
their number dies, " He has gone from 
the lodge below to the grand lodge 
above," regardless of character or re- 
ligious belief. 

I lived by the side of a man for many 
years, who had no regard for religion, 
and had no religious services at his fu- 
neral outside of the rites of Masonry. 
Now there was a minister in our town, 
who was also a Mason. Under the 
resolutions published in our town paper, 
with the usual ending as quoted above, 
was the signature of this minister as a 
member of the committee on resolu- 
tions. When I met him after the funeral, 
I asked why they did not have a minis- 
ter to conduct Christian services, to 
which he made the reply, " I suppose 
it was his request." 

Then I enquired, " What do you think 
is the hope of a man who so hates the 
religion of the Savior of the world?" 
With becoming gravity he lowered his 
head and replied, " There is no hope." 

Then I inquired again, " Where is that 
grand lodge above, where you meet 
again, after leaving the lodge below?" 

His head dropped still lower, as he 
said, " I cannot tell." 

Lincoln, Nebr.

THE KIND OF A MAN. 

A young woman of marriageable age 
on being asked what kind of a young 
man she liked best said: " I love a young 
man who loves his mother so fondly that 
for her sake he is chivalrous to all wom- 
en. I love a young man who will step 
out of his way to avoid crushing a worm 
and will not deem it beneath his dignity 
to succor a stray kitten. I love a young 
man who believes there is a nobler life 
than being a good dancer or a successful 
society man. I love a man who is not 
ashamed of tears for others' sorrow, for 
a tender song, for a beautiful thought. 
I love a man who hates whiskey as an- 
gels hate Satan and thinks too much of 
his brain to make smoked meat of it. I 
despise a ' goody-goody ' young man but 
I love a good one. I would not like to 
be a third cousin to a dude, but I love a 
young man who is a hale fellow well 
met with nice girls and scorns not the 
company of a sister,"

MINISTERIAL LIST, 



Corrected up to and Including December 4, 1906. 



For the convenience of the Gish Fund Department we have found it necessary to arrange the Ministe- 
rial List alphabetically instead of under States. 

Kept in our large fire-proof vaults is a systematically-arranged file, containing a card, 4x6 inches, for 
each minister in the Brotherhood. On each minister's card are his name and address. If he changes his 
address, the change is noted on his card. If he orders a book, as provided for by the Gish Fund, that is 
entered. When a minister dies, or is relieved of his office, his card is removed from the file. If a brothei 
is elected to the ministry a new card, containing his name and address, is placed in the file. 

The following list is set up from these cards. Should any mistakes be discovered, write us so we can 
correct the card list. The corrections made will appear in the Almanac list for 1908.

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



Thousands of Years Ago 

Man wondered and speculated on what life really was. Man is still speculating. 
The subject is almost as great a mystery to-day as it was then. Experiment and 
investigation have, however, demonstrated that the life principle lies in the vital 
fluid, but what this principle or life spark actually is, is still shrouded in darkness. 
We do not know, we cannot tell, what it is, all we know is that it is there. All 
schools of medicine agree that the vital spark lies in the blood. This theory is 
also supported by Holy Writ as we read in Scripture " the blood is the life thereof." 
These facts being established, there are a few principles which will forever stand 
and if we keep these faithfully in mind in the treatment of disease, we cannot go 
far astray. 

Recognizing that the blood is the life, we must, in the first place, see to it 
that this vital fluid is kept pure and vigorous, if we are to enjoy good health. 
This is all-important. If our blood becomes weak or impure, our whole system 
will suffer. We will lose in vitality, in strength. Our old-time appetite disappears. 
What we eat causes distress. We become sick. The weakest spot in our anatomy 
becomes affected first. It may be the stomach, the heart, the liver, the kidneys, 
the lungs or other vital organs. At the same time, our lowered vitality makes it 
easy for us to contract any disease that may exist around us. We are in a sense 
in constant peril. 

An impure condition of the blood will show itself in many different ways. We 
may have aches here and pains there — touches of rheumatism. Our skin may show 
outbreakings of impurities. All these symptoms require attention. Nature 
needs some assistance to throw off through proper channels the poisonous waste 
matter which has accumulated in the system and which is the cause of the trouble. 

It has always been, and is to this day, a source of wonder to the public, that 
diseases which have baffled the so-called highest scientific skill have yielded to 
the quiet influence of a plain household remedy like Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer 
and yet the secret of the whole business is that it struck at the root of the evil — 
the impurity in the blood. 

Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer by its mild, yet invigorating properties, stimulates 
the vital organs to natural activity. It frees the system from accumulated waste 
matter. It eliminates the bile and uric acid from the blood; regulates the kid- 
neys and makes the body fairly tingle with the glow of health. Thousands have 
testified to its peculiar efficacy. Composed exclusively of botanic ingredients and 
containing nothing but what will do the system good, it is the remedy for both 
young and old. Unlike other ready-prepared medicines, it is not to be had in 
drug stores, but is supplied to the people direct by specially appointed agents.

that can be reared. J. J. Auer, Prop. " The

MISSION BOARDS AND THEIR 

ORGANIZATION. 

In the following to make as complete a 
record as possible has been the end sought. 
After two attempts the results are as 
shown herewith. A number of Boards made 
no report whatever and hence the organiza- 
tion goes in as it appeared in last year's 
Almanac. It has been thought useful to 
indicate the time when each one's term ex- 
pires. It is hoped that next year all Boards 
will make a complete report.

YOU ABE THE BEST JUDGE 

Of your own feelings. The doctor looks 
for symptoms, and having found them, 
follows certain precepts, but the rest is 
largely guesswork. Dr. Peter's Blood Vi- 
talizer acts on one principle, as old as life 
itself. It strikes at the root of the dis- 
ease — the impurity in the blood. No 
guesswork about that.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on the 
Bible. — A new large type edition. Six 
volumes in a box. 

It is surprising that, in this labor-sav- 
ing and time-saving age, the ever pop- 
ular Matthew Henry's Commentary has 
not before been issued in convenient vol- 
umes. Two features of this new edition 
call for special attention: First, the 




moderate size of the volumes; second, 
the large size of the type (larger than 
in any previous edition). Other features 
are the excellent printing and substantial 
binding. 

" Biblical students who are most fa- 
miliar with the very best commentaries 
of this generation are most able to ap- 
preciate the unfading freshness, the 
clear analysis, the spiritual force, the 
quaint humor, and the evangelical rich- 
ness of Matthew Henry's Exposition of 
the Old and New Testaments. Ever 
since we have been engaged in the work 
of the ministry we have found our ap- 
preciation of this work increasing with 
our years." — The N. Y. Observer.

Sunnyside, Washington 

Do you want to " go west and grow up 
with the country?" The Sunnyside coun- 
try is in all stages of development. You 
can buy well improved farms where the 
best of High School and church privil- 
eges are available, or a few miles away 
you can buy raw land at a low price under 
irrigation. All kinds of deciduous fruits 
and berries flourish. All kinds of grass 
and grain, and nearly all kinds of vege- 
tables grow anywhere in the valley by ir- 
rigation. The federal government is now 
in charge of the irrigation work. This 
assures permanent structures and plenty 
of water. "Water for irrigation costs $1 
per acre per annum. Wheat is successfully- 
grown on the table lands lying above the 
irrigating canals. We have a mild cli- 
mate, no sleighing, no cyclones. It is just 
right for all kinds of live stock. Thou- 
sands of cattle and sheep are fattened here 
on alfalfa every year. The cities of Pu- 
get Sound, Seattle and Tacoma, only two 
hundred miles away, are the best markets 
in the northwest for all kinds of farm pro- 
ducts. Ocean vessels depart from these 
ports weekly for every part of the world. 
Ministers of the German Baptist Brethren* 
church here are Elders D. B. Eby, formerly 
of Lena, 111., and Elder S. H. Miller, for- 
merly of Waterloo, Iowa. For further 
information address.

BRETHREN'S PLAIN CLOTHES 

Made to Your Individual Measurement 




The Brethren of our beloved fraternity are fast learning 
to know that it pays to buy a tailor made suit because of 
two reasons. First, you get better material, better 
workmanship, linings and trimmings. Second, it is 
the only way to get a perfect fit around the collar 
in this style of clothing. Many are also learning 
to know that Albaugh Bros., Dover & Company is 
the best place to secure them both as to fit and quality. 
We say this only because of the fact that our business 
in this line has doubled itself several times during the 
past season, and because of the hundreds of letters 
which we have received with quotations as follows: 
" We never had a better fit." " Material and work- 
manship could not be beat." " Suit was entirely satis- 
factory," etc. 



Our Measurement Instructions Are 
Very Simple 

The instructions given on the measurement blank that you 
will reaceive with each sample book are so simple and com- 
plete that any one can take the measure from which the suit 
can be made to fit perfectly, the same as if you were in our 
own office and our tailor would take your measure. Remem- 
ber we take the full responsibility upon ourselves of fitting you 
from the measurement that we receive, so that you run no risk 
whatever in sending us your orders. 



Send for Our Special Catalogue "C" 

This sample book is devoted especially to samples appropriate for plain cloth- 
ing, such as clay-worsted, dress worsted, unfinished worsted, broad-cloth, crepes, 
drapes, etc. Our materials cannot be excelled and seldom equalled at our prices, 
with same quality of linings, trimmings and workmanship. With this sample book 
you will also receive information how you can secure a pair of pants or a suit of 
clothes free. Many are taking advantage of this opportunity and you no doubt will 
want to do the same.
